This is a pilot project of smart implementations to test out and validate this model so that it can be expanded to other geographical areas, and turn the city of San Sebastian into a Smart point of reference. Specifically, SmartKalea fosters environmental sustainability, energy efficiency, citizen participation and transparency using cutting-edge technology from local technology partners, integrating the data into the project's smart platform for monitoring purposes and to obtain indicators.

SOCINFO also presented the Smart Cities award to this same project in the year 2015
